Eating Singapore's street food is one of the best ways to experience the delicious Asian cuisine, and keep your belly and wallet happy. The Singapore's street food is one of the safest and tastiest in the entire Southeast Asia. It is so good that even popular chefs around the world, like Gordon Ramsay, go crazy about it. Popular places to try it among others, is the China Town Food Court and the Arab Street. Oh! And the tap water is drinkable.
Every afternoon, the gorgeous bars around the streets, get full of well dressed people who have just finish their work at the office. The quality of the guests at the local bars, and the services provided make the night out a bit expensive for an average budget traveller. Just a glass of beer may cost as high as 10 dollars, and other alcoholic drinks, like wine and cocktails cost at least 12 to 25 dollars. So, it might be a bit expensive, but still the hope is not lost. Search around for bars with special offers. Happy hours may drop the price down to a half.
If you are staying for a day or two, then probably is not worth it, but if you are planning to stay for longer, then definitely go for an EZ- link Card. Exploring Singapore just by walking around is not the best option, and renting a car or a scooter will not come cheap. The Singapore's public transit system is one of the best I have ever seen, and the best way to get around the city. The EZ-link Card, you can get it from any MRT Station or 7-Eleven. It will cost about 12 SGD (5 SGD the card and about 7 SGD for the top up) and allows you to use the all the public buses and trains. If you do not manage spent the entire top up credits, you can return the card back at the end of your visit and get a refund.
